Make the most of your summer produce with this grill-kissed salad, featuring Wild Green Goddess seasoning.
Grilled Vegetable Salad
Grilled vegetables, crunchy romaine, and a simple, herby dressing combine for a salad that's greater than the sum of its parts. To make it heartier, layer in some cooked quinoa or toss in bite-size pieces of grilled tofu or chicken. We love dressing it up with edible flowers, crispy fried shallots, and roasted sunflower seeds, which makes it perfect for entertaining (though you can add any of your favorite salad toppings instead). Best enjoyed while soaking up the sun!
